Jotun's Jotashield Thermo sales moving up

Published on 2007-09-13. Author : SpecialChem

Since the launch of Jotashield Thermo in the Middle East we have had great success in penetrating the market, says brand manager Niru Naik. Initially the response was slow because it takes a long time to get into specifications or change specifications. Moreover the paint was not considered a serious contributor to the insulation process in a building.

However, the acceptance is increasing and we even managed to remove National Paints, our competitor, from the 290 villas of the Government of Dubai after they had signed the contract. Our communication has mainly been through seminars to architects and government offices, targeting professionals. Besides we have had very good support from our loyal paint contractors.
